On September 1st, 2012 (Labor Day weekend), we were lucky enough to hit up two car shows! The first one was the Cars and Coffee Show and The Invasion Car Show in Deep Ellum (Downtown Dallas, Texas). The show was fun but we weren’t prepared for it. Hopefully next year, we will be.
2012 Invasion Car Show
For us, we were lucky to be in the right place at the right time. That weekend, I actually had the weekend off. I never have a holiday weekend off (still had to work on Labor Day) and I almost never get a weekend off unless I request it. So when I ended up getting a weekend off without asking, my wife and I took advantage and we went down to Deep Ellum and few other places to hit up some vintage/antique stores.
While down there, we heard about a car show and decided to check it out. Luckily, I had my little point-in-shoot with me. But, the battery was about dead from shooting the Cars and Coffee Show. So I decided to shoot more of a street photography look trying to get people in the shots of the cars or those walking by.
I took a lot of images and I am sitting on a lot of images and will be constantly adding more from the show. Hopefully I will be able post another article of the car show soon. All images posted have been edited in Adobe Lightroom 3 or Photoshop CS4. To see the rest of the images and future images of the car show, check them out on Flicker.
